- Marine veteran and journalist had access to Facebook group page

(CNN)If you think the 30,000-strong private Facebook group that was sharing nude images of female Marines has been shut down, guess again.
'Women are scared'
Pvt. Opha May Johnson became the first female Marine when she joined the Marine Corps Reserve in 1918.
Almost a century later, three women became the first to join a Marine infantry battalion. The women joined 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment at North Carolina's Camp Lejeune on January 5.
According to military statistics, women tend to make up between 5.5% and 12.4% of troops stationed at Marine installations around the world.
Outliers include Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island in South Carolina and Marine Corps Community Services Camp Allen in Virginia, whose Marines are 16.7% and 3.9% female, respectively.
